Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust
The Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust (JRCT) is a Quaker trust which seeks to transform the world by supporting people who address the root causes of conflict and injustice. This support is provided, primarily, through funding applied for by applicants. At JRCT, we want to engage in philanthropy which challenges the existing power imbalances in society to effect real change. We place ourselves at the cutting edge of difficult and contentious issues. We believe in creating dialogue to support change towards a better world. We recognise that change can take many years to achieve. We are willing to take the long view, and to take risks. We try to be flexible enough to respond to the changing needs and demands of our world.
